GIANCOLI TEXTBOOK (7th. Edition) CHAPTERS:
Note that the chapters listed below are for the 7th Edition not the 6th edition book that we use for the course. However, the 7th Edition varies very little from the latter and in some areas enhances the learning by including additional examples and problem. I will do my best to indicate where the differences exist and prompt students of the differences, particularly with assigned homework problems.

ACTIVITY SHEETS (2019 – 20 SCHOOL YEAR)
EARTHQUAKE PROOF HOUSING PROJECT
Students will follow the Engineering Design Process (EDP) to create models of buildings, test them on a “shake table”, analyze results, modify accordingly, and create a marketing “pitch” based on their models, results, and the perceived “fit” with local culture and needs.
